When I lived in Philly, more specifically Manayunk, I had a favorite salad, soup or sandwich place called Couch Tomato. I would probably eat here about once a week! While I was there, I fell in love with a salad called “ Paco Taco’s Salad!” It was so delicious! So of course, I was dreaming about it the other day and thought I HAVE to make it! I tried my best to stay healthy and clean! (for the most part!) So I bring you my version of a ……Taco Salad!
(makes 4 servings)
1 pound of extra lean ground beef
1 can of corn
20 or so Grape Tomatoes, sliced in half
½ cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
Coconut Oil Spray
¼ cup Cilantro
½ cup of Cheese (any kind- I used cheddar here)
1/8 of tsp Crushed and Ground Red Pepper
¼ tsp Black Pepper
¼ tsp Paprika
4 Green Onion Stalks
4 tbsp Chipotle Salsa
1 bag of Lettuce ( I used a Mesclan Blend)
20 Tortilla Chips
Displaying the Ingredients
Cook the meat on medium
While the meat is coking I like to cut up my veggies!
When those are finished being chopped, it's time to make the "dressing" I take 1/2 cup of yogurt and spoon it into a bowl.
So I have tried A LOT of different taco seasonings and I haven't yet found one that I like! They are all either too spicy, too salty or ingredients that I can't pronounce. So I made this very VERY simple seasoning mix that I use with all my Taco dishes!
Now that the meat is done, I pile on all the ingredients. First I dish out the lettuce then add the cilantro, tomatoes, green onions, 1/4 cup of corn, 1 tbsp salsa, 1/4 cup of ground beef.
Dollop of Yogurt Dressing and sprinkle about 5 crushed chips on top!
